1) Register for an Adobe ID to authorize your reader app(s) and to be able to use ebooks on multiple devices. You will need this ID if you are using the Adobe Digital Editions software on a laptop or android device. You do not need it if you are using the Odilo iPad app exclusively.

  • For Windows, Linux or Mac laptops and desktops, install Adobe Digital Editions (Be sure to use version 3.0).
  • For most mobile devices, install the Bluefire Reader app
  • For iPads install the Odilo app. Once you have downloaded the app, look for "ATLA Libraries" under the list of libraries and log in with your WTS library card number and last name. The catalogue of available ebooks will then become visible.

3)  On laptops, desktops and devices using the Bluefire reader visit to browse and check out ebooks. Be sure to click on the “My Account” button. 


Sign in with your WTS library barcode number and your last name.
